Audio Book Clubs

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by johnssha on 17-09-2009

I just facilitated a “Mastery of Aging Well” online series (http://outreach.oregonstate.edu/aging-well) as an audio book club. A group of 18 older adults watched the Memory Difficulties module together and then we all discussed the content. A few of the participants plan to facilitate similar audio book club discussions in their own homes. The online ‘Mastery of Aging Well’ approach has loads of possibilities. Onward!

I came across a link to your OSU courses in the Mail Tribune while visiting my family in Oregon. I added an article to my blog, Tips for Boomer Years, about it because I think it’s wonderful info for seniors.

Sharon, I’ve enjoyed your columns on seniors and aging for quite a while and I was glad to see you started a blog so I can keep track of the aging well info you offer.

Thanks for such an outstanding presentation. I have shared it with my “Jog Your Memory” class at the Grants Pass YMCA and urged them to attend your course.
